Options are limited academically, but they encourage your kids to do extracurricular activities. Love all the technology, but really way to much on the sports aspect of life. I don't feel the kids are challenged enough, or that the teachers make the kids learn.

the quarter system is limited as are class options for underclassman. The building is in poor shape. The kids areunder challanged and the teachers add nothing new from year to year, some are even unresponsive to student needs such as slow grading of homework. The best are under challanged the middle float by and the bottom third are lost. The administration needs to change the way their jobs are done.

This school has a great atmosphere and all the administators are nice! I was a new student there for 10th grade, and was accepted right away. Great athletics and afterschool programs like key club. The school work is challenging, but do-able if you want to succeed. All the teachers there are great with helping students and working w/ them individually. They really attempt to meet kids where they are.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
